Verdict: This box has a retail value of $48 ($40 if you count the sale price for the earrings). I like all the items included this month, so I’m OK with that value, and, of course, this box is about supporting fair trade practices and learning about the makers of the items as much as it is about value.

What do you think of the February Fair Treasure Box?

  1. I got the same items, my napkins are darker but very pretty and my card is a honeybear, very cute. I got exactly the same earrings and I love them even though I usually don’t wear gold.

  2. I just adore those napkins!

  3. I’ve considered both this box and GlobeIn’s. I subscribed to the latter this month, and though I’m not thrilled with it being a food box, I like the fact there is a theme to that box and an obvious curation process. I also like that the items are more traditional.

    I appreciate that this box is fair trade, but beyond that it seems like it contains random items, that reflect the market rather than the actual culture of the artisan. I mean, there doesn’t seem to be anything culturally Indian about the towels or earrings, or Filipino about the card. I get that’s not the intent of this box, but just to give my 2-cents as someone who would like to commit to a fair trade box.
